You may have seen this before, and if not it might be eye opening. I keep saying that these times are strange and so much more. I can’t help but wonder how everybody is doing out there. Is everyone ok, hanging in there, or barely holding on! I know these times bring different outcomes to all of us and some may be affected much harder then others. For myself I think it could be much worse than it is. Worse in general, can I even make such an assumption when hard working people lose their small business and every penny they invested into their dream goes up in flames? Worse, while you might find yourself separated, having no physical contact with the people you love. You may have lost someone close to you or know someone who did. Worse, when you spend sleepless nights wondering how long this will last, how to pay your bills and what to do when the savings run out. Maybe you never even had that, and food is hard to come by. Saying that things could be worse sounds like an ignorant statement to make, and perhaps it applies to me only, as I really can’t speak for anyone else, but truly hope that each and every one of you can say the same.
When I say worse for myself, I am grateful to have a roof over my head and my Mortgage has been deferred by three months. I have food on the table and don’t need to feel hunger pains. I am not behind on my finances and I am able to take this time to learn some new things, while working on coming out of this better than ever. I am an optimist and the glass is always half full. I am an empath and I am not oblivious to what’s going around me. I sense this big cloud of fear that hangs over us, that makes it hard to understand the reasons, hard to stay positive when the rug is being pulled out from under you. I am not here to tell you that’s it’s not all that bad, because it is and I have no clue what you are battling in your own world. I am not here to tell you to keep your head high, dismissing your issues as if they don’t exist, because some days I know the weight threatens to crush us all. But I am here to share what works for me and that is to keep positive the best you can. A positive mind is a powerful ally and if you can see the good in everything, you are definitely better off cutting down on the noise of that inner turmoil.
I’ve found an old saying that is a powerful play on how we perceive things. May it help and guide during this time and may you stay safe, truly feeling that it could be worse. Here it is…
Today was the absolute worst day ever
And don’t try to convince me that
There is something good in every day
Because when you take a closer look
This world is a pretty evil place.
Some goodness does shine through once in a while
Satisfaction and happiness don’t last.
And it’s not true that
It’s all in the mind and heart
True happiness can be obtained
Only if one’s surroundings are good
It’s not true that good exists
I’m sure you can agree that
It’s all beyond my control
And you’ll never in a million years hear me say that
Today was a good day.
Now from bottom to top ❤️
